Today at Gamescom, Blizzard Entertainment released a new gameplay trailer and more details for StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void's co-op mode, Allied Commanders. This mode, announced at Blizzcon last fall, sees players working together to take down enemies across a variety of objective-based missions.

As the mode's name suggests, you play as a "commander" character pulled from the StarCraft universe. Each commander has his or her own unique attributes and abilities that can be leveled up by playing well. The first three confirmed commanders are Jim Raynor, Kerrigan, and Artanis. More will be announced later.

Watch the video below to see Allied Commanders in action, and continue reading to see official, Blizzard-written descriptions for each of the three commanders confirmed so far.
